Praise   Jillian McIntyre –Managing Partner and CEO at 221B Capital LLC

“Susan is one of the most talented people I’ve worked with. She’s an excellent coach and I would strongly recommend her. Throughout my 20+ year career I’ve always looked to mentors and coaches to keep me on the right path, but I have found Susan’s advice to be the most helpful. She has an extraordinary ability to hone in on the most important aspects of one’s career and skill set and targeting ways of developing them. She is direct and to the point, which I’ve found refreshing and helpful. Time spent with Susan is a valuable investment.”


Monika Zola –Operations Finance Manager –Martindale Pharma

“Susan is a highly inspirational executive coach and speaker – both during her workshops and personal one-to-one sessions. She has a unique ability to combine great listening and people skills with commercial acumen, resulting in spot-on advice uniquely tailored to audience or person’s circumstances. Susan has this uncanny ability to get to the heart of coachee’s challenges and offer practical tips and solutions. I would highly recommend Susan to anyone considering trying professional coaching and looking for a coach that delivers results!”


Stanley Buchesky –Managing Partner at the EdTech Fund

“Susan’s coaching services have been invaluable to me. I highly recommend Susan’s services to senior executives who need a trusted confidant who understands the politics of organizations, but is also grounded in the important interpersonal skills that make executives successful. She’s a great listener and was able to understand my unique skill sets and opportunities for growth. Susan was and is a great sounding board for me as I have faced difficult challenges. She also crafted a very personalized development plan for me and helped me work through it, applying it to current situations. She is a high-end professional, but worth every penny!”


Melanie Honnor – Media & technology executive and NED board member

“Susan is an inspiring and articulate facilitator and mentor. It is clear from her style and enthusiasm that she is passionate about helping others achieve their goals and working with them to ensure they have the tools they need to succeed in their endeavours. She is warm and engaging and is a leader by example. It is obvious she practices what she preaches! I would highly recommend taking one of her valuable and extremely useful Master Classes.”


Rob Bibow –Managing Director/Partner at Sailing Capital

“I have worked with Susan and recommended her to all of my friends. She gets rave reviews from everybody. Susan has the experience of being a senior executive in an extremely demanding environment (a City trading floor) combined with a real insight into what makes people tick and how to get the most out of every situation. In every business, you need somebody who not only knows your business but has the ability to step away and give sound, dispassionate advice very quickly and without wasting time. I could not recommend Susan more highly.”


Marie Bailey – HRM Lecturer and Consultant

Susan came to work with our MSc students at King’s College London and taught them how to command executive presence at work. The session was innovative and taught the students how to be confident and Susan’s personable style made the students feel at ease. They came away with a completely new understanding of how to succeed at work and Susan’s advice seemed to strike a chord with our female students. A great way to finish our employability week!


Olga Pavlova –Director of Sales, UK and Scandinavia at AmanResorts

“Susan is an inspirational and intuitive coach. She facilitates development and encourages change by helping to identify one’s strengths and working through the difficulties. The questions Susan asks are direct, and methods she suggests are easy to apply. We often get so caught up in our lives and habits that having an experienced professional and mentor guide you through viewing each element objectively can have a wondrous impact. I would wholeheartedly recommend Susan’s sessions to anyone who is looking to become more efficient, self-aware and successful.”
